Yeah, we all saw this one coming. I’m still mulling over the choice of Jurgen Klinsmann as the new head coach of the US mens national team. I’m still not convinced it’s the right direction as coach. However, there may be other things going on within the USSF which may be associated with the change which may prove this move to be a good one in the long-run. We just won’t know for some time.
I don’t know if it’s just soccer fans or Americans in general these days but, well, these knee jerk hysterics depending on the latest result has got to end. Sorry but, yeah losing at the Azteca was a disappointment. But ya know what? We’ve never won there. Not once.

I’ve got a little time today so I thought I’d quickly mention some things which has caught my eye lately.
Where the heck is Collinsville? Continuing the trend of putting stadiums well outside the cities the teams are named after, St Louis looks like they are well on the road to getting a stadium for a possible MLS team.
Speaking of stadiums, will RSL ever get theirs?
…And then there’s KC who have had to bring in reinforcements to find somewhere (anywhere) to play. I’m hoping something good happens soon for them.
There’s always …
Yeah, it’s still probably too early to do a full post-mortem but it’s been a few hours and it’s good to sometimes look at things from different angles.
I posted my initial reaction to the news about Klinsmann sometime last night (never check email while waiting for a bottle to warm up for your 18-month old) and was half asleep when I did. After posting, I thought it would be interesting to see what other bloggers made of the news (as it’s got to be the biggest story we’ll see …
It looks like Trecker didn’t get the scoop after all. Juergen Klinsmann pulled out of contention for the US coaching position this evening. To be honest, I had a feeling there were negoation problems. There should have been an announcement weeks ago. According to the LA Times, Bob Bradley will be named as the interim coach for the team. Obviously, he’s the next best candidate.
So, after months of expectation, US fans are basically left with a retread of Area. Not a bad thing but …

It seems Jamie Trecker managed to scoop everyone with news that everyone should have already guessed. Honestly, it’s the news most (if not all) US fans wanted to hear. Jürgen Klinsmann will be in charge of the US team sometime in the near future.
From Trecker’s article, it sounds as if a lot of negotiating had to take place in order to make it happen. The thing is, I wonder how much the American soccer fan’s opinion played in Klinsmann’s favor? It looks to me as if …
It’s December 1st (my son opened the first Advent calendar door this morning) and we still have no word from USSF on who Arena’s replacement will be. However, Gulati is now confirming he’s talked with Klinsmann. This many now mean anything though.
Pele says we should have Klinsmann. However, I’m not sure how much experience he’s had hiring coaches.
So, now the question is, will we have a coach before we hit 2007?

I’m not over it, probably never will be, but I’m now getting used to the idea that I’ll never see this seasons MLS Cup Final. However, the Final itself was almost secondary to all the announcements the league made this weekend. Some are pretty darn big.
The owners have finally decided to open their checkbooks. Yeah! I’ve read/heard numerous opinions on this. Here’s my take…this is nothing more than a marketing move. Seriously, Becks is a decent player for someone with only one foot. …
